3-5-13. Bond found insufficient by county commissioners--Determination of sufficiency by circuit court. In case the board of county commissioners should decide that a bond presented to it is insufficient, a reasonable time, not to exceed five days, shall be allowed the officer to supply a sufficient bond, and such board may take three days to consider the approval of any bond. If such board refuse or neglect to approve the bond of any county officer or township officer elect, he may present the same to the judge of the circuit court and serve notice of a time of hearing thereof upon the board. Upon due proof of such service being made to the judge at the time therein named, he shall, unless good cause for delay appear, proceed to hear and determine the sufficiency of the bond, and may approve the same, and such approval shall be in all respects valid.
